I suspect you’ve been here, too!
Lots of things on your list. Many of them feeling huge. It’s not necessarily the most comforting place to be.
Especially on about four hours of sleep!
At some point in what passed for morning around here, I happened to check the groovy moon phase app on my phone. (This is definitely a growing edge in my education!)
We are currently in a waxing Gibbous phase, which means growing toward the full moon.
According to the app elves, my advice for this day was:
Break new ground, get back to the things you have been putting off, turn your creativity into success. Your family and home will benefit the most from this lucky day.
Maybe it was enough to shift some of the stressful stuff from right in front of my face to a bit farther out of focus. Or, maybe, the lack of solar guys crawling all over the house improved my perspective.
In any event, for some reason, today I could see how many things I could make better just in the course of wandering through the house.
So, I spent the day putting away and straightening and recycling as I made my way from one official thing to another.
You know the way..
On the way to the studio? Take the new box of neurographia pens and put them away!
Waiting for soup to bubble on the stove? Clean some stuff out of the fridge. (I mean, how many tiny partial bowls of bar-b-que sauce do we really need???)
Stashing a book on the bedside table? Scoop up a load of sheets and head for the washer!
Is a day like this going to save the world?
But, it did let me get some stuff done on a very tired day.
Possibly because I put the energy it takes to ignore things to good use… And, I got some extra movement in there, too!
All of which suggests, not only with the moon app elves, but with a lot of the things I’ve been learning lately, that I am, indeed, a bit closer to creating good things with creativity.
Also, for the things that weren’t going so well, but need to, I actually asked for some help!
One day, as the old saying goes, at a time… with much love from me and the Studio Angels who are, not surprisingly, sound asleep!
